Marrakech garden

You can see the irony, can’t you? We do a garden for the Chelsea Flower Show, based on a Moroccan Courtyard, win a silver medal, then build the Chelsea garden back in our centre in Marrakech.
A bit weird really. But all part of our cunning plan to entice some of the thousands of visitors to Marrakech (with frankly, not very much to see or do there) to come and visit us and see the work first hand.
I felt that people on holiday – even if they were concerned about animals – might not want to go and see an animal hospital. Visions of suffering and misery and all that. But actually it’s not at all like that. The centre in Marrakech is an oasis of green and tranquillity in the middle of the chaotic, noisy, bustling city – giving an atmosphere of hope and optimism. The new ‘Chelsea Garden’ merely compliments it, and the animals in their stalls and kennels seem to appreciate that atmosphere.

I agree, having recently visited. It was with trepidation that I forced myself to visit but I am so very glad that I did. It was an uplifting experience and I left much happier in the knowledge that there IS finally somewhere for all the animals that work so hard to please. If you read this, please do make the effort to visit - it isn't as harrowing as you may imagine.
